Looking for a home
Making lives better
You can contact your local authority directly (search your local authority website for the number) or visit your local Safeguarding board websites.
You can raise concerns to us, and we will act to support the individual.
If you have concerns about bad practices or abuse in a care home or by homecare services, contact the appropriate organisation. You can also report your concerns to the Care Quality Commission on 03000 616161.
You can speak, in confidence, to your GP, practice nurse or dentist if you are being harmed. If you know an adult at risk who needs medical attention or seems to be emotionally upset, talk to them about visiting their GP or, with their permission, talk to a doctor/practice nurse on their behalf.
